The Signet Ring
WASPs and classically dressed men should not wear a great deal of jewelry. I think men should stick to a watch, cuff links, and possibly one ring other than a wedding band. If one chooses to wear a ring, it needs to be a classic style. I personally cannot think of anything more classic than a gold signet ring. It should be worn on either the ring finger, or the little finger. It should be engraved with the owner's initials, or a coat of arms. Different rules apply for women, and it is perfectly acceptable for them to wear bracelets, necklaces, etc. Signet rings make great gifts, and it is much better to receive one than to buy it personally.
